Self Portrait
For this illustration, I planned to emulate the illustrative style of a contemporary figure artist while using color to stylize to create a self portrait. I admired Richard Diebenkorn's self portrait drawn in marker, so I used a similar technique while choosing colors for myself based on my personality. I chose yellow for joy, purple for creativity, blue for empathy, and pink for my sense of humor.
I started this piece by sketching out the lines and shapes of my face, followed by shading in the different values to determine where each color would go.
